Extensions Rock's name shows that the salon's staff is passionate about their work, but it doesn't quite reveal how meticulous they are. They source all of their Remy hair from India, Brazil, and Malaysia—acquiring virgin strands that retain their natural texture after styling and washing—and undergo continual training for new application techniques. During appointments that are available 24/7, their nimble hands not only sew in weaves but also fuse extensions to existing hair with keratin and micro beads. The salon rounds out its specialties with haircuts and straightening that uses gentle products—some of which are formulated by the staff to ensure they're just right.
You never know what you'll hear inside Ajuda Day Spa. The staff likes to play diverse selections of music from around the world, including that one country populated entirely by kazoos. The eclectic soundtrack is fitting, since it reflects the wide range of hairstyles that emerge from Ajuda's salon chairs. Owner Jodi Griffin and her fellow stylists can sculpt funky looks, traditional styles, and special-occasion hairdos. For extra dimension, they add highlights and color with products from Redken and Matrix. The beauty experts also administer treatments for damaged hair, as well as spa services such as mani-pedis.
The floor-to-ceiling front window at Topps Salon Day Spa lets in natural sunlight that bounces off the pale-yellow walls and light wooden floors. Upon entering the airy salon, guests see shelves full of pink, purple, and green Pureology bottles—with a few products by American Crew and Framesi sprinkled in—as well as a counter with complimentary coffee. A row of six styling chair lies to the left, where staff draw on their certifications and training in Brazilian Blowout, Vidal Sassoon, and Framesi to revamp hair.
In the day spa, aestheticians wax away unwanted hair and rejuvenate skin with facials for both men and women, while massage therapists relieve aches with Swedish and shiatsu massages. Nail technicians contribute manicures and pedicures topped off with OPI polish, or create nail art recreating each scene from the Bayeux Tapestry.
Owner Jacquie “Blu” Washington brings a contemporary flair to old-Hollywood glamour, not only in her creative hair designs but also in the modern, sumptuous interior of GlamSity, the salon that she cofounded with her mother Gloria. In the salon, which was featured in Essence magazine in 2011, Blu and her staff create looks ranging from runway chic to timeless classic with services such as haircuts, color, relaxers, and weaves. As a backdrop to their styling services, wooden furniture and curved, wood-framed mirrors stand out against the salon’s baby-blue walls.
